it was a good day


HOWLIN’ AT THE MOON (Photo credit: Foolsgold….)

yes, it is the weary winter
and the days of discontent grow a little longer

as the moon slowly spirals
away from mother Earth over geologic time

and I notice the night outside grow colder
so, I get up to close my open window

but first I shout, “Hokahey!” to the moon
Hokahey, I am ready for whatever comes

      Ah!. I’m in California and it is colder, but it’s not really that cold. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem.

    “and the days of discontent grow a little longer…” 😉 don’t you think john steinbeck should have shouted “Hokahey” to the moon as well? then, he wouldn’t have wrenched our hearts with his writings like so, hehehe… 😉 isn’t is spring over there yet, sir?… 🙂

      Steinbeck. Is that where I got that “phrase” from?

      Where I am the weather is getting really nice during the day. Still grows cold at night, though. Take care, San!
